I show no changes in the start date. Production volume will start lower and then ramp up during the first few weeks of production. SRT starts second week of February.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Mike Manley, Jeep CEO:

"Jeep’s diesel-powered Grand Cherokee is on track to hit U.S. dealers at the end of first-quarter 2013".

"drivers will be impressed with the SUV’s driving dynamics and reduced noise, vibration and harshness..."

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

So end of March... cool. But we should still be able to order at the same time as the others, 9 Jan, right?

Very interesting statement makes me even more interested in the summit interior.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Sorry to ask again, but can someone comment on the 8.4" radio and how is fits into the dash. Is it integrated like the Charger or does it have the extra trim piece to make it blend in like the 300/Ram?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I saw one in the SRT8 section, but then it was mentioned that was the current model interior with some of the upcoming upgrades fitted for testing.

Other than spy pics, we don't have a confirmed interior picture.

Nav layout looks like what's in that pic posted a while back.

Note: That was an S0 pilot in the pic, but should give you a good idea of what you'll see.

You're not missing much as far as appearances.

Milous, correct me if I'm wrong but isn't this the first Jeep getting the Powernet architecture and the new key fob?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

According to this article from Autoblog the diesel will come with a 6 speed automatic...they are pretty reliable but hopefully they are wrong on this one.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

That would contradict what is posted on WK2Jeep as it states the 8spd for the 3.0L. I guess we will see soon enough.
